When it slips off and cant be found, it's time to turn to the condom stuck inside guide.

Can a condom get lost inside a woman? Many women use condoms for birth control and to protect against sexually transmitted diseases. Women have experienced condom slippage during intercourse for millennia. While it is not common, it is possible for a condom to slip completely off a man’s penis during intercourse and be left in the woman’s vagina after the man withdraws. Surprisingly size has nothing to do with it. Big and not big, it is best to give a quick check every so often. It can be alarming when the condom gets stuck inside. The condom does need to come out as soon as possible. The cervical opening is not large enough for a condom to go through so it can't go any further than the top of the vagina.

In most cases, if the condom is actually stuck, a woman won’t be able to feel it from the inside, the same way you can’t always feel a tampon after insertion. However, you may still be able to reach inside your vagina with a few fingers and pull the condom out.

Condom Slippage

Because condom slippage does put you at risk for pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, it’s important to understand the causes of condom slippage so you can prevent it from happening again. If condom slippage happens more than once with the same partner, definitely try a smaller size condom. You might meet less resistance from your male partner if you purchase the smaller size in a different brand condom than you have been using.

If you have experienced a problem with condom slippage, had to ask the question “can a condom get lost inside a woman,” or even needed to make a condom retrieval clinic visit, you might feel embarrassed or even be inclined to stop using condoms. Instead of feeling embarrassed, you should feel proud that you are taking responsibility for your sexual health. Condoms are an excellent way to prevent both pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections and, if they are used correctly, are more than 98 percent effective.

Understanding why this mishap occurs in the first place can help you avoid a repeat performance. Some of the possible causes: If the rubber is too loose or too tight on your man’s member, it can slip off midthrust or burst. It can also happen if he doesn’t hold on to the base of the condom as he pulls out, or it can even be the result of ultra-vigorous thrusting during intercourse.

Unlike condoms and tampons, which are designed for vaginal use, other objects can be inserted in the vaginal canal. So readers, do not fear to see a GYNO if a condom needs to be fished out because chances are that they have already seen or heard it all. Removal of foreign objects, especially if they’re large, should be left to a professional. Remember that any women, especially condom and tampon users, can expect to have difficulty removing an object from the vagina at some point in their lives. Try to stay relaxed, use the techniques discussed below, and above all, know that there is no other place for the object to go.

Lost Condom

Don't panic if it does disappear during sex like some deviant magic trick. Lost condom solutions are a plenty. One way or another the condom always reveals itself.

Lie Down Method

You should lie down on the bed, facing up, and then spread your legs apart. If there are no traces of the condom outside your body that you can carefully pull out, you have to feel it inside and take it out slowly. Take extra care so no part of the condom breaks and stays inside the vagina as you do this. Know that if this happens, you will have to see a doctor to help take out the remnant.


Another thing you can do if you are having difficulty removing the condom is simply trying to squat it out. If you aren’t able to get the condom out by lying down, try this squatting technique. Plant your feet flat on the floor and use your quads to squat down in hopes of getting the missing rubber out of the vaginal canal. The change in position might cause the condom to come out easier if it isn’t lodged too far in there.

Helping Hand

It might be embarrassing, but your partner might be in the best position to fish the condom out than you. His fingers might also be longer, which will work better if you just can’t seem to reach it. In order to gain better access, try propping one foot up on a chair. Don’t forget to ask your partner to wash their hands first. Then stick their fingers inside and feel around to see if they can reach it. You can also try maneuvering your legs to push it out if you can’t seem to reach it. Some women recommend getting into the birthing position and actually pushing as if you’re birthing a baby. With a helping hand from your partner the condom search typically comes to an end. If not be sure to visit a doctor immediately.
